Introducing Tequisquiapan

This small town (teh-kees-kee-ap-an), 70km southeast of Querétaro, is a quaint weekend retreat from Mexico City or Querétaro. Tequisquiapan used to be known for its thermal springs – Mexican presidents came here to ease their aches and tensions. These days, despite the presence of cool water pools in hotel gardens, it's known for its pretty, bougainvillea-lined streets, colorful colonial buildings and excellent markets.
